    ..cause they've made a deal with the Norwegian Reichkonzerten to play a fucking 8 concerts in Norway!
    :OMG:
    My orgasm, your hearse! Especially since I have contacts in at least four of the places, which makes it likely I'll see them play four times in a week lol.

    This is so wacky, we've definitely moved beyond the days of 'Morningrise'.

    I am bedazzled, speechless, confused, happy ... Been wondering for so long why there were no Norwegian dates added to their website for the 2008 tour and now THIS.

    ^Congratiulations are in place! And they're playing additional shows here in Finland as well.

    And also, Ihsahn. He suggested it himself. Don't expect any Unhealer duets though :(

    It's gonna be awesome, I'm sure. I will at least go to the first concert, in Oslo, and the last one, in Drammen, as I live pretty much right between the two cities, with just a twenty minute drive either way.
    I am considering the Volda-concert too, as that was where I studied for seven years, damn this is just too cool.

    All are small in international standards.
    In Norway, only two of the places should be considered small.

    I guess Volda and Sogndal?
    Just saying it's nice they are playing small places.
    Not just the capitals.

    This is pretty much the biggest let-down I've heard this year. All of those gigs are 18+ I think :(

    After some mailing with the company arranging the gigs, it seems all concerts will be 18+ (not 100% sure). They also say that tickets are in sale for all shows, but on billettservice.no, you can only buy tickets for the shows in Oslo and Bergen. Do anyone know where to buy tickets?
